Born and raised in Regina, SK, Canada I moved to Vancouver, BC after my training in economics at Queen’s University. I currently work as a Fisheries Economist, researching the human role in managing living marine resources on a global scale. One focus of my work concerns the influence of government subsidies on renewable resources such as marine fish.
I have a beautiful girlfriend, Jen, and a black cat named Hercules. In my spare time I enjoy making music, boxing, and tending to planted aquariums.
